March 31, 1943
A silver birthday spoon, which was made in the Netherlands, has been smuggled out of the country, and has reached London. The spoon is now en route to Ottawa, as a gift for Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, the youngest daughter of Crown Princess Juliana.
The spoon's bowl has been made from a 1941 Dutch Guilder, a year after the Netherlands was occupied by Germany. The handle of the spoon is "topped" by a 1941 Kmartje coin and a crown.
